Not much is known about Samukele’s husband but she did post a picture of her brother-in-law, whose name is also unknown.

Samukele’s marital surname is Masindi and from the emojis, she used to caption her picture, she is smitten with her husband.

Unlike her character on Skeem Saam, who is battling to secure lobola for herself, Samukele has been leading a private life, and it seems she is not ready to let the world in on what goes on when the cameras go off.

Khwezi has been taking full advantage of her situation with Lehasa (Cedric Fourie), while Pretty (played by Lerato Marabe) is busy trying to make Lehasa see his baby mama for what she truly is.

Lehasa is completely oblivious, and this has been irritating Pretty. Tonight Pretty will do something that she is sure will get all of Lehasa’s attention.
